Doctor had not obtained or reviewed any of my previous tests prior to my arrival. He ordered some tests for me, without giving Specific Instructions as to preperation. Ended up having to fast twice.

Every time I had an appointment he didn't do anything but the bare minimum. I felt like he was only seeing me to collect a check. I also felt like he was very biased about weight as when I told him I was having frequent headaches he said it was related to my being overweight. I have epilepsy and...more

Waiting time is too long as Dr. Iqbal is chronically late to arrive at his office. Appointments canceled with little notice. Staff turnover is constant. Follow through on paperwork, insurance or prescription issues is poor.

Doctor was good but the receptionist was not. Twice she screwed up trying to set me up for an MRI and saying she would get back to me the same day. It's been a week first time was 10 days. It's time to find a receptionist that knows what she is doing. She is in the wrong job

I had my first appointment with Dr. Iqbal this morning. He was very thorough, he took his time, had a very gentle bedside manner, and was so easy to talk to. He explained everything to me in great detail, and I left feeling very reassured and confident. I recommend him highly.
